DDMO A Figment Of Imagination?

Every time I review a UK game I look for possible DDMO plays and have a very difficult time in differentiating them from other plays. Now it is entirely possible (likely even) that my understanding of the DDMO (I've read and viewed much about the system) is so minimal that I'm unable to identify it, but then I read this from Kevin Stallings:

"They don't run the dribble-drive motion (offense) very much," the Vandy coach said. "That's one of the big fallacies about Kentucky basketball. ... They run set plays about every time down. Every once in a while, they run a little dribble-drive. Two, three times a game."

Stallings concluded his digression by saying, "The dribble-drive is more a figment of people's imagination."

And I thought, maybe I'm not quite so dull. Further rumination led me to consider that the DDMO was adopted by Calipari as not so much an alternative systems but rather as a means of differentiating himself from other coaches, thus providing a great marketing opportunity — especially to the elite player who wants a system that utilizes and accentuates his individual talent. Not much DDMO in 2010 because the presence of Wall, Cousins, et al wasn't conducive. Not much last year either. Hard to note this year as well although the personnel seem nearly perfect for DDMO principles. Have we been hoodwinked by that sly old trickster? Hmmm.
